A Mahopac man was killed and three teens were injured in an early morning crash Wednesday on Wood St. in Putnam Valley.

According to Putnam Sheriff Kevin McConville, a 23-year-old Mahopac man was heading north on Wood St. at about 8:55 p.m. when his vehicle crossed into the path of a southbound vehicle, driven by an 18-year-old Lake Peekskill male.

The 23-year-old driver of the first vehicle, Bryan Tumolo of Mahopac, was pronounced dead at the scene. 

The other driver and a 17-year-old female passenger from Putnam Valley were airlifted to Westchester Medical Center with serious injuries. A second passenger, a 15-year-old female from Putnam Valley, was transported by ambulance to Westchester Medical Center.
